Excellent Tawjihi results achieved by Patriarchate schools


The schools of the Latin Patriarchate in the Palestinian territories achieved brilliant results on the Tawjihi final examinations taken during the last year of high school in the local school system.

Amir Franjieh, an 18 year old student from Gaza, obtained a score of 99.1% in science. He placed fourth in the district and the 14th in the Palestinian territories.

Fifty two students of the Patriarchate’s schools achieved close to a 90% average and 18 of them surpassed the 95th percentile. The school of Nablus ranked number seven and Zababdeh number nine among the 403 superior schools of science in the Palestinian territories. The Taybeh school is ranked 30th among 703 schools with a focus on literature.

After the summer, some of these students will begin at the new American University of Madaba that the Patriarchate has established, thanks to the support of the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulcher of Jerusalem. The opening is scheduled for September with two faculties: Business Administration and Science.

His Beatitude Fouad Twal, Latin Patriarch of Jerusalem, and Rev. Faysal Hijazeen, General Director of the Patriarchate’s Palestinian schools, sent a congratulatory message to the schools and students that distinguished themselves with their excellent results.
